littoral.sci-art project

littoral is a new art cum science project in which I plan to examine the ever increasing volumes of  litter we find on our beaches. I will be surveying and cataloging the litter, the materials, possible origins, longevity and implications for our environment.

This project is my response to my fear of drowning in litter, which I am increasingly experiencing when on beaches around our coast. So often now high-tide lines are marked not by seaweed but by a massive tangle of manmade materials dropped or washed up. Even on beaches which look clean, grains of sand are often laced with acrylic fibres, cigarette ends, plastic granules…….and more.’
